This study evaluated occupational exposures among poultry workers to five volatile organic compounds released from the extensive use of solvents and proteinaceous waste decomposition in the poultry farms. Concentrations of five volatile organic compounds VOCs (acetone, benzene, naphthalene, phenanthrene and pyrene) were measured in blood samples of 49 poultry workers from Pakistan to assess the occupational exposure. All of the concerned VOCs could be detected in more than 95% of blood samples.... Topics: VOCs, Poultry Workers, Occupational Exposure, Smoking, Indoor Air
